still angry, hurt, scared...when does it get easier?

Recommended Posts


I was diagnosed with hsv2 about a year and a half ago. I was with my bf for almost 3 years and during this time I was faithful to him. We both had multiple partners in the past but I was tested every year. Around the time we broke up I started having outbreaks. Terrified and clueless, I went to my doctor and I tested positive for hsv2. I asked if it was possible I had it for a while and she assured me it was recent, within the past month. I told my ex and he refused to go to the doctor and figured yea he prob had it for awhile and didn't know but I took that risk in being with him. I later found out he cheated on me the whole time we dated. Im still so angry at him for this and that he doesn't care at all, just brushes it off. I feel so hurt and worthless, even after a year. I just started a new relationship and havnt told the new guy yet. Does it ever get easier to deal with? I've only had to tell one partner and it was terrifying. I hate that im generally single and have to tell every potential bf for the rest of my life!

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
